Choosing the Right Fence

Why is cedar fencing so popular?  Cedar fence boards are rich with dark red, brown and orange hues.  The boards have such a strong cedar smell that is so pleasant and aromatic. Cedar fencing comes from old growth cedar trees. When the trees are harvested; the trunks are as big around as Volkswagens, mostly comprised of heart wood with a few outer sapwood rings. Western Red Cedar trees contain tannins that naturally preserve the wood from decay and insect attack. The inherent tannin oils saturate the lumber, naturally protecting it outdoors for many years. The darker red tones are derived from the center of the tree called the heartwood where the tannin oils are most concentrated. These characteristic combined with Western Red Cedar’s centuries of proven performance make it the preferred choice for building outdoor structures such as fences, arbors, and pergolas.
